Year 6

Year 6 is a special year for students as they bring to an end their Primary School journey and prepare to embark upon a new adventure.

Expectations for Year 6

  • An enjoyable year with new opportunities and experiences,
  • Progress for all children and the highest standards achieved for every child,
  • Building independent skills ready for secondary school,
  • Embedding a high level of respect,
  • Challenging the children to discover their unique gift - Who has God called me to be?

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please feel free to see me at the end of the day. If I am not available or this is not convenient for yourself, then please make an appointment with me via the school office.

I look forward to continuing to work with you this year to ensure that your child reaches their full potential whilst in my care.

Miss Battick and Mr Healy

   Summer Term 2 (from 01/06/20 - end of the school year)

  • Maths: During this final half term, it is really important that you focus on consolidating your Maths knowledge and skills in preparation for secondary school. 

Numerise Secondary Ready is a FREE online course which has been designed to prepare Year 6 learners for starting Year 7 in       September. Your parents will need to help you sign up to this. More information in this Parent Letter.

My Mini Maths has a series of FREE Year 6 transition activities which include the 10 key areas from the Year 7 curriculum. You can work through one activity per day and then check your answers which are at the bottom of each worksheet.

You can also use My Mini Maths for Revision of other Maths topics and Arithmetic Skills. 

  • English: Each week, keep up to date with current affairs by reading First News. Then complete the vocabulary/comprehension tasks and puzzles. Visit our First News page HERE.

  • Year 6/7 Transition

This half term, I would really like for you to spend time, whether you are at home or in school, to start to prepare yourselves for moving on to secondary school.
